Background Activity is a selection of songs written and produced during the creation of Distant Activity (2007 - 2008) that were not included on the album itself.
During the creation of Distant Activity, there were a number of songs written and produced that didn't make the final cut. Some went on to be released as part of other projects (namely, The Dawn EP). Some tracks were a little too quirky. Some didn't fit with the overall aesthetic of the album. Some just wouldn't have fit on the album. As time passed, these tracks remained archived and untouched - a curious reminder of musical and emotional ideas that were never intended to see the light of day.
As such, Background Activity is a revisiting of the period during which Distant Activity was created. All unreleased tracks are presented in their original state - rough edges and all - as a musical time capsule for anyone interested in hearing some of the ideas that paved the way for the completion of the full album itself.
